Please call this to the attention of any grad students whose research has a
connection with the New England flora:
The New England Botanical Club
Graduate Student Research Award
Deadline: 3 March 2003
The New England Botanical Club will offer up to $2,000 in support of
botanical research to be conducted by graduate students in 2003. This award
is made annually to stimulate and encourage botanical research on the New
England flora, and to make possible visits to the New England region by those
who would not otherwise be able to do so. It is anticipated that two awards
will be given, although the actual number and amount of awards will depend on
the proposals received.
The awards will be given to the graduate student(s) submitting the best
research proposal dealing with systematic botany, biosystematics, plant
ecology, or plant conservation biology. Papers based on the research funded
must acknowledge the NEBC's support. Submission of manuscripts to the Club's
journal, Rhodora, is strongly encouraged.
Applicants must submit three paper copies of each of the following: a
proposal of no more than three double-spaced pages, a budget, and a
curriculum vitae. Two letters in support of the proposed research, one from
the student's thesis advisor, should be sent directly to the Awards Committee
by sponsors. All materials should be sent to: Awards Committee, The New
England Botanical Club, 22 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138-2020.
Proposals and supporting letters must be received no later than Monday, March
3, 2003. The recipient(s) will be notified by April 30, 2003.
